’No evidence’ that COVID-19 survivors have immunity, WHO warns

The WHO warned that there is no evidence that people who have recovered from COVID-19 have immunity to the disease. The comments came shortly after the UK Govt. announced it had bought 3.5 million serology tests, which measure levels of antibodies in blood plasma. ’We have no evidence that the use of a serological test can show that an individual has immunity’, Dr Maria van Kerkhove of WHO said.

So if history has made us learn any lessons recently, in 1-2 months this headline will be proven 100% wrong.

No evidence that it will give us immunity but also no evidence that it won't. It's all a game and presentation is everything.

They're partially correct. A disturbing percentage of people recovered aren't showing antibodies, meaning they can be reinfected. Herd immunity is still the only realistic goal and antibody tests are the best way of getting there.

Those of y’all saying they’re going to be proven wrong or they’re worried about appearances.. they gave a scientific answer to a scientific problem. They’re being conservative about encouraging people to leave their homes because herd immunity could still be the best solution for all we know. Sure, they *could* be proven wrong, but it’s responsible that they’re warning us now while they jury’s still out. It’s also another reason why testing is so critical and why we need more ASAP.

Well thank you. Maybe if all of you focus on solurions rather than politicking u may actually come up with a real workable solution. Unless of course it's not in your best interest.
